Lifesmart Recalls Lifepro Brand Portable Mini Space Heaters

DMICRO-Left_New2_800Lifesmart has recalled Lifepro Portable Space Heaters due to a safety concern. The screws used to attach the back plate to the heater are too short, and allow the back plate to detach when removing the heater from the outlet, posing an electrical shock hazard to the user.

This recall is for Lifepro brand portable infrared quartz space heater models LS-IQH-DMICRO and LS-IQH-MICRO. They have a three-prong plug built into the back to allow them to be plugged directly into an electrical outlet. The Lifepro logo is molded into the front bottom of the heaters. Model LS-IQH-DMICRO is a 400-watt heater with digital display on the top. Model LS-IQH-MICRO is a 450-watt heater with no display. The model name and wattage are printed on a label on the back of each heater below the plug.

Consumers should immediately unplug and stop using the recalled space heaters and contact Lifesmart to receive either a free repair kit consisting of four longer screws with instructions on how to install them; a free replacement heater with the modified screws; or a full refund.
